I am not sure what is happening in my life right now. I find myself staying up way too late. Last night I saw the clock pass 1am, and this without having taken a nap. This never bodes well for getting up early and beating traffic into work.
It’s not exactly like spending a night at the Playboy Mansion. I spent the majority of last night eating leftovers, unboxing my Christmas gift, watching the Pittsburgh Steelers shit the bed, and cleaning (organizing really).

There’s a new sheriff in town…
Now all I need to do is learn how to use it.
And On The Heels Of Joy, Disappointment
There is a saying in football “That’s why they play the game on the field.” Going into last night’s game I was three points behind my opponent with Pittsburgh’s quarterback Ben Roethlisberger going for my team and Pittsburgh’s running back Willie Parker going for my opponent. I felt confident. Pittsburgh beat Miami 3-0. I lost.
Not only did I miss an opportunity to lock up a playoff position, I lost a lunch bet as well. I am bordering on a collapse only exceeded by this year’s NY Mets. To add insult to (virtual) injury I had Cincinnati’s Carson Palmer sitting on the bench and if I had played him instead of Roethlisberger I would have won. I should fire myself as head coach.
Anyone else believe that my beloved NY Jets will allow Miami their first victory of the year next weekend?
Competitive Much? Or The Amazing Race — “Let’s Get Out Of Africa”
Oh The Amazing Race… It is going to be interesting to watch the little former LA Clippers dance squad member get frustrated as she and her boy-toy attempt to beat Team Ethiopian Scrabble. As an aside does anyone else find it odd that Team Ethiopian Scrabble, who are siblings, were holding hands as they ran?
Of the remaining teams here is my current “Annoyance Ranking” from most annoying to least
- Shana / Jennifer : Get over yourselves already! You are not that attractive.
- Ronald / Christina : Moronald, how about keeping that mouth shut for once?
- Nicolas / Donald : Why is the old man doing all of the hard work? The kid won’t even get his shoes dirty.
- Nathan / Jennifer : God help us if they procreate.
- Azarea / Hendekea : They are good, but there is something about them I don’t like — and I think it’s Azarea.
- Kynt / Vixsyn : They are growing on me, but the whole “Goth Thing”, which includes the spelling of their names, still irks me. btw- I have been putting the male’s name first but I had a hard time with this here because Kynt is definitely the girl in this pair.
- TK / Rachel : I just wonder if they smell.
This episode was rather lackluster for me. They remained in Africa and the challenges weren’t really, um, challenging. Catching a chicken in a pen? (saw this in Rocky thirty years ago!) Riding a bike packed with crap? Dancing? Mining for gold out of puddles of muddy water? (btw – I soooo would have pocketed a few nuggets for later in the race).
I really thought that we were going to lose TK and Rachel when the BottleBlondes decided to U-Turn a team. (I don’t remember U-Turns from past seasons. Anyone?) Instead they dropped the hammer on Jason and Lorena– who after last week’s Lorena meltdowns I was not saddened to see leave. The heartbreaking thing was their individual exit speeches:
Lorena: I’ve learned to slow down. I can wait to marry Jason.
Jason: Why do people get married? Marriage is so limiting.
Yeah, best of luck you two.
CD Pick Of The Week
Heads it’s Mudvayne.
Tails it’s Pitbull.
According to my source those are the two new releases today. As for me I’ll be listening to Bruce Springsteen’s latest release “Magic” which also arrived in the post yesterday.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – miffed
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing REM — “Wolves, Lower” (It’s been 25 years since I first heard this song and I still love it!)
Website Of The Day – Instead of buying music today go watch some on the internets at Concert TV. Consider it your little contribution to fighting consumerism.
